Craft Training

Why train with us?

The ABC New Orleans/Bayou Chapter's training program is accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research. The curriculum that we use was developed by the industry to train skilled workers.

Education and training will always be a win-win situation for both the employer and the employee. With nationally accredited curricula developed for the construction industry, the ABC New Orleans/Bayou Chapter is training hundreds of men and women in industry related specialties to meet and exceed the most exacting standards in the country. Our craft training program gives individuals the opportunity to learn a trade, become skilled craftspeople, and earn an income. This training provides ABC contractors the ability to employ a highly skilled workforce. With the clout and knowledge provided by some of the most qualified instructors in the United States, ABC trained workers tend to receive higher wages and experience more job satisfaction and greater job retention.


Our Chapter has the curriculum for over 30 trades; however, we are currently training in the following crafts:
